Boat friendly campsites on the Solent?

Apart from Riverside are there any campsites on the Solent that are happy to have a 5.4 meter RIB and trailer? I would also consider a B&B with suitable parking.

I have a family free weekend coming up and am looking at spending 3 days down there, launching each day from Calshot or Warsash. I'm in Bristol so could do day trips at a push.

Any advice is much appreciated.

you used to be able to camp over at buckler hard on the beaulieu river.

the slip is nice to use in cracking surroundings.

master builder house hotel has good food and beer plus once down the river are quite central in the solent for cowes, yarmouth, southampton and lymington.

there fuel, chandlers and over night mooring too.

You can not camp at Calshot unless you are a member and there is normally a large waiting list, once your are a member you have to camp there at least 7 nights a year.

You can however leave you rib in the car park if you need to although you will need to pay at the reception in the main hanger for this.

Bingosucks uses the campsite at warsash I believe

RIBase
It'll be worth asking at Kingfisher Home | Kingfisher Caravan Park

Then use Gosport slip.

Thanks to everyone that replied. Some great suggestions there. I think I'm going to give kingfisher a go this time around. I spent most of my summers as a child on the beach at Lee on Solent so it'll be a bit of nostalgia too.
